Winters in NY are pretty unpleasant and I think I've heard the M sport steering wheel is NOT heated. I love my heated stearing wheel now and would hate to spend all of this money on a new car and not have that. Anyone know the answer?

Hmmm... I am confused.

I have a 535i M-Sport on order, thus a M-Sport steering wheel. On the vehicle inquiry (detailed order) sheet, under cold weather package, the Heated Steering Wheel (248) is still listed. I would think that if something isn't or not allowed based on combo of certain packages, it would not be still listed.

I know on the 3-series M-Sport, you cant have the heated steering wheel, but I think on the 5, you do not loose the ability for this.

Do you mean the Sport package?

On BMW's website, the M Sport Package is only shown as being available on the 550

No, I do indeed mean the 535i with the M-Sport ($6500) package. On the BMW site for the build your own, you currently can only do so with the 550i, 550xi and 535xi. They have yet to add the option to the BYO for the 535i. However, you could begin placing orders for the 535i with M-Sport in early August (as I did). Mine was produced week 35, which was the first week of September production. A heated steering wheel is on my detailed order spec sheet with the M-Sport steering wheel.

I ordered a 550i msport and my spec sheet says the same thing. I made sure it was on there cause I definitely want it.
